Introduction to Pro Bono
The Ontario Bar Association's Pro Bono Sub Committee was created in 2016 to encourage lawyers to do pro bono work and to connect them with opportunities to do so. The Sub Committee pays tribute to lawyers that do pro bono work and also recognizes those who facilitate and coordinate pro bono efforts.
We aim to support lawyers in the provision of pro bono services and to connect those in need of services with lawyers that can help. To that end we are formalizing our link with Pro Bono Law Ontario; we recently sponsored the National Pro Bono Conference and our webpage provides links to relevant information and articles, as well as identifying current opportunities for pro bono work.
